Neon Raptor Tap Takeover
On Wednesday 28th September, Derby based brewers, Neon Raptor take over our taps!
Starting out with a domestic hob, a stock pot from Wilko, a garden hose and a copper pipe, they were on to something kinda awesome from the off and scooped 1st prize in the Brewdog Nottingham Homebrew Contest, giving the them the encouragement to giving brewing a go, like, for real.
A newer, better version of the prize winning beer was brewed and now goes by the name of Endangered. It’s a 6.6% ABV porter matured with authentic Kentucky bourbon, American oak and Madagascan vanilla and it’s great.
Since then, the Neon Raptor range has grown quickly and at the tap takeover, you’ll be able to taste 6 brand new beers! See all of the details below.
Anyone who knows the PLY team knows we’re big dinosaur fans so as well as enjoying some gorgeous craft beer you can also enjoy a Pisanosaurus or a PIZZanosaurus (of course!) – a roasted vegetable pizza with dinosaur décor. We’ll also be leaving out blank pizza boxes and neon craft supplies for you to design your own Neon Raptor themed pizza boxes. The creator of the best box will win Neon Raptor beer to take away and all entries will go on display in the bar.
Don’t miss it! x
